TLDR
Colin Nicol was the first to show that bioluminescence is under nervous control and he made an extensive study of the tapetum lucidum, the reflective layer at the back of the eye of a wide range of animals, particularly those living in dim light. Expand
Physiological effects of hydrocarbons on the marine diatomCyclotella cryptica
TLDR
Both aromatic and paraffin fractions affected the chlorophyll a, protein, and sugar contents of the cells, and toxicity levels were affected by the presence of dissolved organic material in the medium. Expand
Effects of Produced Water on Settlement of Larvae: Field Tests using Red Abalone
Field studies of biological effects arising from the chronic discharge of produced water into the marine environment have emphasized potential impacts to the benthos, and have not addressed directlyExpand
Effects of water-soluble fraction of the Mexican crude oil “Isthmus Cactus” on growth, cellular content of chlorophylla, and lipid composition of planktonic microalgae
TLDR
The toxic effect of the WSF disrupts the biosynthesis mechanisms required for a functional photosynthetic apparatus in sensitive algae, a phenomenon coupled to sterol accumulation in these algae. Expand
The effects of the water soluble fraction of iraq crude oil on eggs, larvae and postlarvae of gilthead sea bream, Sparus aurata linnaeus 1758
Abstract A study of the effects of the water soluble fraction of Iraq crude oil on eggs, larvae and postlarvae of gilthead sea bream, Sparus aurata is presented. The water soluble fraction of IraqExpand
ACUTE TOXICITY BIOASSAYS WITH PETROLEUM PRODUCTS: INFLUENCE OF EXPOSURE CONDITIONS
Forty-eight hour-LC50 values (acute lethal toxicity) were obtained with young rainbow trout exposed to water-soluble fractions (WSF) of a range of crude and refined oils. The results were compared toExpand
The effects of petroleum hydrocarbons on lipid metabolism and energetics of larval development and metamorphosis in the american lobster (homarus americanus Milne Edwards)
TLDR
It cannot be ruled out, however, that decreased lipid utilization, synthesis and mobilization may be a defense mechanism against incorporating lipophilic components of petroleum hydrocarbons in metabolic pathways, and that disruption in energetics and development is a consequence of the reduction in energy available for growth and molting. Expand
Acute toxicity of water soluble fractions derived from a coal liquid (SCR-II) to three aquatic organisms
Acute toxicity screening tests were conducted with water soluble fractions (WSFs) of a solvent refined coal (SRC-II) liquid from a pilot plant and three reference organisms: the cladoceran DaphniaExpand
Gulf of Mexico dissolved hydrocarbons associated with the Ixtoc I mousse
Abstract Increased levels of dissolved hydrocarbons were observed in the western Gulf of Mexico during the late summer of 1979. This period was associated with heightened levels of surface tar andExpand
